From Mad World News:
Gary Weiss, formerly a volunteer coach at Catalina Foothills High School in Tucson said he was cut from his position after school officials gave him an ultimatum: tell players to stop praying or lose his position. Choosing prayer, Weiss lost his job, according to local NBC news affiliate KVOA-TV.
“My concern is the rights of the kids to do what is their right to do,” Weiss told the outlet.

Although voluntary invocation is permitted at the school, staff members are prohibited from promoting or facilitating student’s prayer, a district administrator told the affiliate.

Weiss denies administrator’s allegations that he organized and supported prayer among the team members with his claim that no adults led the student’s invocations. Weiss added to his claim that prayers were inclusive, KVOA reported.

“The prayers of the freshmen team have been recited by Muslim kids, Jewish kids, and Christian kids,” Weiss said in an interview with the affiliate.

This is a disgusting attack on the First Amendment… remember that amendment? Freedom of speech and freedom of religion? It is unlawful for a person to be fired protecting individuals Bill of Rights. Here are some of the students tweets below.
